From Russia with Love


Categories: [Architecture]  [Europe]  [Russia]  
Located on the Red Square, the Cathedral of Saint Basil the Blessed is the most recognized building in Russia and is a symbol of the city of Moscow. In fact, for a long time didn't know it was a cathedral and I believed that it was the Kremlin...
Commissioned during the reign of Ivan the Terrible, it is one of the finest example of Russian religious architecture.

In October 2008, I traveled from Moscow (Russia) to Shanghai (China) mostly by train, on board of the famous Trans-Siberian. Crossing Siberia, Mongolia and Northern China, I traveled during one full month. This is the first picture of a series relating this unforgettable journey.
